Stockland’s makeover of the first section of its Green Hills mall in East Maitland, NSW is over, with the developer officially opening it.

The $412 million redevelopment and expansion of Stockland Green Hills is expected to be complete in 2018.

Upon completion in mid-2018, the centre will more than double in size to around 74,000 square metres and will feature the first new look David Jones department store in the Hunter, a new 900 seat Hoyts cinema and around 225 tenancies with a vibrant new dining and entertainment precinct that will be the biggest and best in the region.

The first section’s open brought 14 retailers to Stockland Green Hills, including Cruise Travel, L’Amore Nails and Toto Sushi, all new to the centre, and Blooms The Chemist, according to Stockland’s website.

Ten retailers made their return to the centre’s brand new premises, including Best&Less, The Reject Shop and MyHouse.

“Today we are one step closer to transforming Stockland Green Hills into a vibrant, thriving shopping, leisure and entertainment destination that is set to be the pride of the Hunter,” Tim Beattie, Stockland general manager, Design and Development, said.

The redevelopment is on track to generate more than 2,600 jobs, including 1,350 construction jobs, 1,250 direct full time jobs in retail, customer service and hospitality, and some 1,200 flow-on jobs for local suppliers.

The opening was attended by Meryl Swanson MP, Federal Member for Paterson; Jenny Aitchison MP, State Member for Maitland; and Mayor of Maitland Councillor Peter Blackmore OAM.

Meryl Swanson MP, Federal Member for Paterson, the project would boost the local economy through new jobs and "a fantastic place for us to shop and relax”.

“It is fantastic to see the Stockland Green Hills redevelopment making such great progress especially with the thousands of new construction and permanent retail jobs it will create for the Maitland community,” added Jenny Aitchison MP, Member for Maitland.

The redevelopment of Stockland Green Hills continues to steam along for the next stage, with around 17 additional, new retail stores expected to open in August 2017.
